tra-la, it's may

(title courtesy of Camelot)

What a wonderful, wonderful day!

Yesterday the chokecherries bloomed which meant (according to all my Russian friends) it was time for a cold spell. Sure enough--it was 1C today!!! That means whatever has been allergying me for the last WEEK died or froze or retreated and I can breathe again. I have no headache!

Yesterday, I sent off my homestudy to the embassy in Moscow to get my I600 extension. Woo-hoo! Paperwork out of my hands.

And, today I Fed-ex'd all my paperwork to new agency. All of it. No more paperwork in my hands. OOORAH! It's my friend's birthday today and she used her birthday wish to send off my documents with hopes and good wishes for "the little girl we've all prayed for to quickly make her way home."

Also today, my principal showed me pictures of my potential flat

in my current building
in the courtyard and not on the street
with its own parking space
and it's infinitely more kateish than the flat I'm in now (amazing as it is, it's.not.me).


She's going to negotiate for a long-term lease tomorrow. TOMORROW. I won't share details until I know for sure, but I'm so, SO EXCITED!

Tra-la!

Saw an elephant today and my first (and only) thought was you! Fingers crossed, good thoughts and a prayer for good measure are being sent.
